  Beethoven house Bonn
by margaretvn
 
 

Visit the beautiful old city of Bonn. The old city centre is beautiful and compact. So it is easy to explore on foot. it was founded by the Romans in 11 BCand it later grew in importance under the Archbishops of Cologne. It is a favourite city of ours because
it is the city where Ludwig v. Beethoven was born in 1770.
The Beethovenhaus is where the great (in my mind greatest composer) was born on the 16th of December 1770 and where he lived until he was22 years old. He never returned to Bonn. The house is now a museum. You can walk through the house and see musical instruments, manuscripts of his and memorabilia covering his life.
